LeBron James’ More Than A Vote Initiative Has Recruited More Than 10,000 Poll Workers and Counting

LeBron James’ More Than A Vote Initiative Has Recruited More Than 10,000 Poll Workers and Counting https://ift.tt/2NdfClv

Two weeks ago with the presidential election looming, Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James’ voting rights organization, More than a Vote, launched a “We Got Next” campaign to help recruit poll workers. With a partnership with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the organization had announced this past Wednesday that it had recruited more than 10,000 poll workers.

On September 17, a Twitter message was sent to recruit poll workers.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, More than a Vote’s partner in this initiative, used its Twitter account to boast that more than 10,000 people had signed up to become poll workers.

 

The recruitment efforts didn’t stop after the rush of people joined the ranks.

President Barack Obama lent his support with a virtual shout out to poll workers when he appeared (virtually) at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat.

The numbers have kept rising.

If you haven’t signed up and would like to, there is still time.
